After the great success of our first edition, we are happy to announce the second edition of PEPPERSchool, an international thematic school that brings together chemists and biologists interested in engineering peptides and proteins endowed with tailored functionalities and useful for solving current societal challenges.

 

The current COVID-19 sanitary conditions in Europe and around the world has created a large uncertainty over the “in-site” organization of PEPPERSchool in March 2021. Therefore, the organizing committee decided to switch to a virtual event keeping the same dates and it is currently working to make of this thematic school another successful event. High emphasis will be given to maintain a high interactive school.

 

PEPPERSchool 2nd Edition will have the technical support from PremC.

 

Please, keep checking our web page for further information and updates.

 

PEPPERSchool will cover the following topics:

       · State of the art chemical and biological tools to produce peptides and proteins. It includes all types of modifications, cyclic/branched scaffolds…

       · Peptide and protein folding

       · Advanced methodologies to evolve/screen for new activities:

             - Construction of gene libraries

             - Display technologies: phage display/ribosome display

       · Site-selective modification of peptides and proteins

 

Check our edited book to have a flavour of these topics.
